Monday July 28…1:45pm
This past weekend was about the busiest the campground has been. I think there were 4 vacant sites last night. Management is pretty good at keeping the partiers away and making it a family atmosphere, but there have been
a few noise makers this weekend. And we had to keep some of the tenters from walking through our site as a shortcut to the washroom. I joked with Ruth that it wouldn’t be so bad if they were half ways goodlooking, but most of them are obese and apparently just plain lazy. Ruth stopped one whale of a woman and told her it wasn’t a path, it was our site…and the woman says “what, I’m expected to walk all the way around?” As if the extra 2 minute walk wouldn’t do her any good! We put our picnic table in the middle to try and stop them, but a few still tried to get through. Ignorant people.
Yesterday was warm, and Geoff and Fran were taking the pup “Molson” down to the beach for a swim. They asked if we wanted to tag along with Whiskey, and we all had a fun couple of hours walking on the beach.

One day last week we went for a long walk on one of the trails in the National Park. It was pretty hot, and we did about 10 km’s. One section was through the woods and there were quite a few mosquitoes….not fun. I was almost running near the end of that section. And, we went for a walk near the Anne of Green Gables house. This is another National Historic site that I just don’t get. It’s a house and a barn…they charge like $8 or $9 to get in, and it obviosuly used to be someones house…but they’ve made it into what was based on the Anne of Green Gables book…which is fictional. I just don’t understand how this becomes a “National Historic site”. But obviously I am in the minority, if you look at the hords of people who go there. We went on a walking trail that goes from the highway into the property, and there was nobody anywhere checking for people who had paid, so we walked right in. Obviously run with that high level of governement efficiency!
Not much else going on. We leave here 2 weeks from today, and start heading back to Ottawa, while taking in the route around the Gaspe Peninsula.
